The Raiders have come up with an interesting strategy to avoid cutting the wages of their employees.
Rather than trimming payroll, the organization has asked its staff to aid in the selling of season tickets while the lockout continues.
"Different teams are taking different approaches," Raiders chief executive officer Amy Trask told the Associated Press. "Certainly some teams are taking one approach: How do we decrease expenses during a work stoppage? We looked at this from the opposite approach. Let's all work together as an organization, every single department, to increase our ticket revenues."
To avoid a pay cut, employees must sell season tickets worth 10 percent of their salary. Oakland's season-ticket packages range from $260 to $960 per season.
